CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
